brand new year, brand new LOGO! {New Orleans photographer}

After a loooooong hiatus on the blog, we’re finally back!  We’ve been SOOO busy creating beautiful portraiture for families since our last post in July, we got too busy to blog!  So we’re hiring additional help so that we can manage it all. 🙂  The next few posts are going to let you in on all the new things going on at Olivia Grey Pritchard Photography!  First off, you’ll see a new look to our site, blog, and marketing materials.  We hired the amazing Katie Loerts of Katie Loerts Design to create a new interpretation of our brand. The most important thing I wanted the new design to convey were our standards of simple and timeless beauty and our commitment to excellence.  I think Katie’s design beautifully illustrates these principles!

The new logo was just one part of the many new things we are doing at the studio to refine both our craft and the way we do business.  We are committed to providing our clients with the highest quality images, experience and products, and we will continue to invest in every area to provide that.  This year, we have invested in enlarging our studio space, a new continuous lighting system for the studio that newborns and babies prefer to strobe (flash) lighting, our new brand look, remodeling our studio viewing space, and an amazing private mentoring class with the world-renowned Julia Kelleher of Jewel Images.  I traveled to Oregon to spend several inspiring days with Julia and some model newborns in Julia’s lovely studio so that I could bring back such timeless, beautiful studio newborn portraiture to the heart of New Orleans.  More on that later!  For now, please enjoy our new look and new logo!

an incredible din…{New Orleans child photographer}

make an incredible din


I love Calvin and Hobbes (who doesn’t?), and since little Rhys here looks so much like Calvin to me, today I had to use this little-boy-quote from the comic strip.  Isn’t it so spot on?  Is there a parent in the universe who doesn’t feel like their kid was saying this EXACT thing in his head at some point as he banged away at something (while they were praying the noise would stop)?  😉

power of imagination

It’s really true.  As adults, we can really get bogged down in the everyday routine.  But the stuff that kids come up with… it’s why I never get tired of working with them.  Yesterday I got to go to Santa’s Secret Workshop with a great friend and her 3 great kiddos, and watching them get so excited made me re-think rolling my eyes about the elf actors with the fake British accents (not sure why they had them, maybe they thought it sounded exotic?).  Watching Ingrid giggle with her eyes all crinkled up, or Leo brave his Santa-phobia (“I don’t want to see Santa because I cried last time”) to realize he really DID like chatting with him and his “loooooong beard”… watching them both, unprompted, make sure to get their baby brother Noam a candy cane from Santa because Noam didn’t want to get too close… well, it was the best.  It got me over the hump of being glued to my work at this time of year and into the real Christmas spirit.  I mean, I went to the North Pole yesterday!!!

I think I’ll work on being more like a kid in 2014.
